Whether you’re a hobbyist looking to take your homecooking to the next level or are a more experienced chef looking to specialise further into different cuisines the course is designed to be engaging for a range of skill levels.
All dishes are available in video and written format to make them easy to learn from with insider chef tips and cultural tidbits throughout and you can lean on your peers for support and advice. If you’re looking to push yourself there’s plenty of bonus content, you can seek out fellow specialists within the Rassa community and tap into the deep knowledge base of our Irish chefs.
This depends on your schedule, but you'll need to set aside around half a day a week to cover the key topics. If you have more time on your hands each course is packed with bonus content and recipes to get stuck into so that you can make the most of the platform.
The majority of classes are pre-recorded so you can work through them on your own schedule. Once a month you will be able to book onto a live online class with the chef. For these classes we will try to be as flexible as possible and offer multiple time slots to cater for different timezones around the world.
For this course, you will largely use common items found in the majority of kitchens for example, bowls, scales, an oven, chopping knives. For month 3 you will need a barbecue. Once you enrol onto the course, you’ll have access to the full checklist of equipment you need as well as a few optional but nice-to-have pieces of equipment.
Once a month you will receive a pantry box with the hard-to-find specialist ingredients for example, spices, oils, pulses and vinegars. You will need to buy the fresh ingredients, majority of which you should be able to find in a supermarket/grocery store however, where there are less common items we will let you know where you can get your hands on them.
Once the course starts you’ll be placed into a peer group with other cooks from around the world who will be taking the course at the same time as you. You can ask and answer questions, share your creations with each other and throughout each week the chefs will be checking in to answer any questions you have and help with troubleshooting.
Yes, the chefs will be interacting with you and your peers answering any questions and giving support where they can. Every month you'll also take part in a live class with one of the chefs and your course peers, where you can ask for more in-depth feedback on your creations and showcase your work.
We recommend doing a bit each week so that you don’t fall behind the rest of your peers but if you do we’ll help you get back on track.
Yes, every course is entirely virtual, so you can learn from anywhere. We’ve designed these courses to not just be convenient but also as interactive as possible: engage with your course peers from all around the world, ask the chefs questions, book onto live sessions and learn hands-on.
Yes, once the course is finished you will have full access to the pre-recorded video lessons and content. You can keep using the content as a resource to refer back to as you progress as a chef.
